Our merrymaking will centre around Skye and Raasay and island life, with photographer Alastair Jackson, co-author of The Spirit of the Hebrides. The book combines the contemplative poetry of Kenneth Steven with Alastair's photographs, which capture the sublime beauty of the isles of Skye and Raasay. Those of us who love these islands should appreciate the familiar haunting quality of the images, which pay homage to one of Scotland’s leading 20th-Century poets, Sorley MacLean.
Though Kenneth Steven will not be with us for the evening, our blethering, of course, will include his literary contribution to the book, while we enjoy refreshments served by the Reading Room.
Some members meet up at Edinbane Inn for dinner or snacks, at 18:00 before the meeting. Feel free to stop in.
